Fearing war, Lebanese PM asks Hariri tribunal to lay off Hezbollah

According to the report, Hariri said on Tuesday that he intends on giving up on the findings of the tribunal “for the interests of the country.”

Hariri was quoted as saying that the Lebanese government will turn to the UN to “work to stop the activities of the tribunal and to cancel the work protocol between the government and the tribunal.”

Moreover, the newspaper quoted Hariri as saying that he will stand by Hezbollah if the group is found guilty by the tribunal, and that Lebanon will not support any of the tribunal’s further activities.

“I have already sacrificed a lot, and I cannot sacrifice more,” Hariri said.
